Once upon time I had a vision of a chapel hidden somewhere in the French Pyrenees. It was connected to Mary Magdalene and the Cathar faith, but before that the site of an apparition of the White Lady. No doubt made possible by the confluence of two rivers and the year long gushing of a holy spring. La Source de Belisama, flanked by moss covered standing stones magnified an already potent gateway into the other world and the realm of all that is good. This chapel held answers, secrets and mystery.
People say the Cathars washed the Holy Grail at this spring, and that the Book of Love is hidden deep inside. There are suggestions that Mary Magdalene spent time here, sending word back and forth to the Holy Land, whereas the Cathars used this crossroads to exchange herbs, food and ‘objects’ precious to their tradition.
I say, this chapel, Notre Dame de Sophia is the first to proudly open its doors and welcome in those who wish to feel the spirit of peace descend upon them. Water flows around the edge of this chapel, and filling its walls with its tricking sound.
All we are waiting for is the statue of Our Lady, who will stand in front of the altar and appear all glorious and bright during the day, whereas at night, she will be drenched in a darkness, that is warm, welcoming and wise.
This is an eternal gift from my father, both human and divine…
Thank you Dad. My grandest vision has now been made manifest. It is exactly as I imagined and knew one day it would be.
We Have Returned…
